University of Kentucky student indicted on 15 federal charges

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The University of Kentucky student accused of sending social media threats could spend several years in prison after a grand jury returned a 15-count indictment against her.

Haily Duvall, 19, is facing 15 combined counts of transmitting threatening communications and giving false information.

The UK student is accused of using Snapchat to disseminate on-campus threats to other students. She would later give an interview to WKYT about the threats just hours before police arrested her.

Duvall was released from jail Nov. 21 after a judge ordered her to stay within the Eastern District of Kentucky while staying off all social media websites. Duvall’s defense attorney said she would live with her pastor Ben Hughes if bonded out of jail as the case continues.

The penalties for each charge are up to five or ten years in prison along with a $250,000 fine.
